General Scythe Meaning
Scythe is a much-dreaded card due to its quick and destructive nature. It is similar to Coffin in the sense that it symbolizes endings but differs in the fact that in Scythe endings are swift and unexpected. Also, like the Coffin card, this one spells death but unlike Coffin death will claim his victim almost out of the blue.
Scythe also predicts accidents for your seeker. These accidents may be small or sinister depending on context and surrounding cards. Cuts will appear as Scythe. Your client should be careful if they’re into crafts and scrapbooking. Literally sharp things, cutting, scissors, etc. all fall under Scythe.
Figuratively, cutting ties is represented by Scythe. If Scythe appears in their reading, your seeker will be removed quickly and without warning. Therefore, this card is a bad omen for relationships, especially if they’re in the habit of selecting dates who do not call back the next day.
